The Joseph Banks garden was developed by the Society and offers a tranquil oasis in the centre of Horncastle. It is a Tribute Garden to Sir Joseph’s interest in botany and includes many plants with a connection to him.
They represent specimens either seen and catalogued on the Endeavour or collected by gardeners who were sponsored by him.
A complete list of the plants in the Tribute Garden can be found on the Garden Plants Page.
